Due to a lot of people requesting for more Otayuri fic recs from me, I have decided to make these rec lists a weekly thing! I’ll probably post one every Saturday with ten fics (maybe more, maybe less, it depends) included.
That being said: PLEASE, PLEASE GO AND CHECK OUT ALL THE OTAYURI FICS ON AO3, NOT JUST THE ONES ON MY LISTS IF YOU CAN…!!!
They are ALL so good and wonderful, and I feel so blessed that there are so many wonderful writers in this fandom. My rec list is just a compilation of my personal favorites for people who don’t have time to go through the tag regularly!
I hope you guys enjoy (I know I sure did hohoh…)! <3
Back and Forth (oneshot, sfw) by kiyala (don’t think they have a tumblr)
THIS FIC KILLED ME. IT JUST UTTERLY WRECKED ME. GOD. There will be one scene in this fic (and you’ll know which one when you get there trust me…) where you will just be UNABLE TO CONTAIN YOUR SHRIEKS OF LAUGHTER AND AMUSEMENT… Be ready for your heart to melt into a puddle of warm, squishy goo. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
I already recced this fic on tumblr but I shall rec it again. I am also in the process of drawing fanart for this fic. That’s all I have to say. (No, really, GO AND READ THIS AND DIE FROM THE SHEER HOTNESS AND UST OF IT OKAY, YOU WILL HAVE NO REGRETS I PROMISE).
Stupid Ideas (oneshot, sfw) by JeSuisLePomme (don’t know their tumblr either rip)
I DIED. I JUST… DIED. THESE TWO ARE JUST SO AWKWARDLY BUT BREATHTAKINGLY IN LOVE??? WHAT ARE FEELINGS??? I DON’T KNOW???
Another fic from one of my favorite writers I’m crying??? I love how subtle yet powerful their writing is… Every sentence is one part of an intricate puzzle. Anywho, THERE’S MEDAL KISSING IN THIS FIC…!!! SO GO READ IT!
On Love: Agape (oneshot, sfw) by Kima (don’t know their tumblr ahhhhh)
THERE’S LETTER WRITING IN THIS FIC. AND RUSSIAN SWEAR WORDS. AND AWKWARD CONFESSIONS. WHAT COULD BE BETTER???
After much debate, Allura will attempt to pilot the black lion, and fail like she did in 80′s Voltron. Keith ultimately takes over piloting the black lion.
People will call the writers racist.
Lance will have a meltdown from being in Keith’s shadow. Him and Keith have a very good episode(s) of working out their troubles. In the end they declare each other brothers.
Shippers scramble to explain how this is different from when Keith called Shiro “like a brother” and that kl@nce will still happen.
Lotor is introduced. He is a very well rounded, morally gray villain. There are glimmers of a possible redemption arc.
Anti-shipping blogs multiply like bunnies. Everyone who has Lotor as a favorite character is immediately put on a list of problematic people to avoid and redemption arcs/problematic faves are myths. Zuko who?
It is hinted that the Alteans might not have been 100% good guys.
It will somehow be interpreted as racist writing.
More Kallura moments. Maybe even some Lance and Allura moments.
More complaints of heteronormity. Possibly more staff harassment because why not.
Coran is awesome.
There will be more Hunk cooking jokes.
Even if Hunk gets more screentime/development, people will still complain.
Keith saves Shiro.
People are angry because Allura (or fan favorite Lance) should have saved him. Who cares if that’s how it was in season 1 and 2.
She!th reunion hug. There are tears. (Bonus points for that being the last scene of season 3.)
People will complain because Sh@llura reunion was much less tender (or even non-existant).
I tell everyone this and I mean it. Buy a journal. Carry it with you everywhere you go. And I mean everywhere. Write about your favorite moments, your least favorite moments, ideas, grocery lists, people you’ve met, strangers you’ve walked past on the street, favorite quotes, words to remember, what the sky looked like at 7pm, new songs you’ve discovered and what they mean to you, your childhood, places you want to go or places you’ve been, write about your passions, how you feel in this exact moment, draw out the mountains, scribble all over the pages. And when that one gets full, buy a new one. Reread it in 2 years, 20 years, when you need a good laugh, when you’re crying on your bathroom floor, read it to your children. You need to remember these moments in your life. They are so important.
so it’s interesting to me that we were all brought here by love. and yet, sometimes our fandom is just the opposite of that. judgmental, hurtful, mean, rude, etc. it has been nice to come back tonight and see all of these lovely messages of love on my dash.
there’s a reason i’ve never done a follow forever or when i’ve gotten anons asking for a list of other blogs to follow, i’ve said no. i’ve been left out of things before, lots of times in fact, and it always sucks. i’d never want to be the cause of that for someone else. i’m going to try very, very hard here with my list of love.
the stay salty ladies. @alarrylarrie@louandhazaf@theonewiththebluemic@justafatbirdonaboat@fratboylouie@unintentionalarry amanda, nic, lu, katie, julia, ashlee. you guys are so great and i’m so lucky to have made friends with such lovely people. like nic said, the round robin of positivity is amazing. when one of us is down, another one is up, and we help each other through. and not just fandom stuff. you guys have made a huge difference for me, encouraging me to start writing and keep it up, but also other stuff. you know what i’m talking about. i’ve loved getting to know you guys and your families.
some other people @gettingaphdinlarry i don’t know you well, but i like what i know. you’re an awesome beta and super smart.
@phd-mama getting to know you a little at a time. love your writing, but also that you are an hp freak like me.
@nottooldforthisship i know i tagged you already, but i love ya. you’re awesome. what you do for the fandom with fic recs is amazing, but also what you do with supporting and encouraging writers is a big thing. i love it.
@someonethatsfunny i don’t know you well, but i like you. you’re always super sweet when we chat <3
@softlouiswarmharry you are always so nice about my fics. messaging me when you’ve read them and i just love getting feedback from you.
@xabjectlessonsx phoenix you’re super super lovely, talented in many facets, and you love dolly parton and cher. enough said. i can’t wait to get my tattoo and send you pics!
There’s a story that I lied when I said I had horse-riding experience when I was auditioning for the Narnia films. They asked me if I’d been on a horse before and I said yes, because I had. It’s just that it was when I was five and it was a Shetland pony. But that’s not the point—I answered the question truthfully.
So,something really incredible happened two days ago, finally I reached 8k followers!!!!!!!!! OMFG 8 thousand people are following me
I honestly never ever thought that this would happen. I have less than a year with this blog and i don’t know how you guys are following me. Thank you!!!!!!!!! You make my life amazing and this makes me feel so happy.
Sorry if my URL change confused some of you!! (I will return to mylifeiskpoptrash in a few weeks!!)
I will tag some of my favorite mutuals, I can’t tag you all because they are a lot, but still I appreciate everyone, so don’t feel bad if you aren’t on the list, still you are very important.
♥ - friends ♦ - favorites (the best of the best) 💕 - people I couldn’t live without
Film is an avenue that I really want to explore more. I’ve learned that my personality is quite impulsive and spontaneous, so the idea that I could play a character for six months and then play something else immediately after is really appealing to me.
